Winners of the National Geographic Photo Contest 2012

Always an inspiration, the winners for this year affirm the National Geographic’s reputation for great photography. Out of over 22,000 photos submitted, only 14 were selected.

I particularly liked three photos: ‘The Explosion’ (Grand-Prize Winner), featuring an Indochinese tigress; ‘Among the Scavengers’, showing Kenyan women picking through a dumpsite; and ‘Stilt Fishing’, showing fishermen from Sri Lanka practicing a traditional fishing technique.

Yet another sensational photo is ‘Predation, Up, Close and Personal’.
